Small Pleasures: Laundry Day

I’m glad I can find the happiness in small things. Today I finally had time to do some maintenance at home. I hand-washed 11 pair of handknit wool socks, four of which were gifts and seven which I knit myself.

Then I did the machine laundry. In two loads, I washed 19 pair of handknit socks, all of which I knit myself. Those machine-washed socks are about half mine (including the pair in this picture), and half Brian’s. I don’t knit him sox that need hand washing, it just doesn’t make sense. Maybe it doesn’t make sense to make them for me, either! I sure did wait a while to do the work of washing them this time.

No wonder I was out of socks! But hey, there is such delight in seeing all these beauties, each with their own personality. It makes me smile!!!

I tell you, small pleasures make the difference between a grumpy person and a sunny person. Today I choose to be sunny, even though the sky is not.
